This is another card we made at the Stampin Up class. I love this simple bouquet and would work for any type of card. Just added a simple little yarn bow.

I started my pulmonary rehab yesterday. I can say I have high hopes for this class. I was able to do six minutes on the bike and six minutes on the treadmill. Not fast, but I made it through. They worked with us on the breathing and that helps. There was another lady there for the first time too so we worked together.  When I parked and walked into the hospital I had to sit down and catch my breath before getting on the elevator. When I left I did not have to do that, so that was already an improvement. There are four other classes on nutrition, medications, emotional aspects and prevention measures that I also have to attend and a support group once a month by the American Lung Association. It has refreshments!

Winter has returned today with howling winds and a bit of snow. Great day to start my Easter cards.  I haven't really felt like doing much because I don't have much energy. I take a nap every afternoon and hope to give that up soon. Be kind to one another.

    We have milder weather here at the moment but the wind is quite biting.

  6. This is such a beautifully simple and elegant floral card. Love these soothing colors. Really happy to hear the 1st therapy session went well, and am so proud of you for making the effort to try this. Some days I expect will be a little hard to make yourself go, but you're doing something proactively to help yourself breathe better. Enjoy staying inside and cozy today. Nothing wrong with a nap either!! We have earned the right to nap if we feel so inclined! TFS & Hugs
